    During the high school golf season, Cassidy Chambers certainly stands out as being the only girl on Staunton River’s team and often the only girl on the course.

    But don’t be fooled by her short 5’0” frame, she stacks up just fine against the boys.

    In fact, Chambers was the No. 1 golfer on her team this year, finishing fourth in the Blue Ridge District (BRD) with 86 points. Her 86 point total was just half a point shy of third.
